Question about 2005 Jeep Wrangler
When my Jeep first starts it squeals loudly (have replaced serpentine belt already). After I get it moving it will usually stop. However, if I am rolling along and slow down or stop it will start squealing again and will only stop if I turn off any accessories I have running (radio, heater, and sometimes even headlights) or after I get it up to 1500-2000 RPM's. I have had trouble in the past with leaking water onto my passenger floor mat in the front when it rains and when I take it through the car wash - could this be part of the problem?
Also this morning I couldn't get it going well - it shuddered violently in 1st & 2nd gear and my "check engine" light started to flash on and off, then came on steadily. I turned around and went home. My husband put his code reader on it and it came up "Cylinder 1 misfire". Could these two problems be related? **Yesterday I ran it through the car wash since the weather was unseasonably warm and it rained VERY hard all night - could something be getting wet in there?
HELP me!! She's been a good, hard runner for me for nine years now, and I refuse to let her go just yet! She's got about 108,000 miles and has seen very regular maintenance. Just got a clean inspection in July. Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated!
I had what sounds like the same issue on an 96 grand cheroke and i also changed the belt but every time when starting cold it would squeel so started investigating and low and behold it was the distributor the bushings inside have worn and would squeel til it warmed up so i would try this to see if that helps

The only thing I can think of is that the belt needs tightening. Check all the pulleys, sometimes if there are glazed it will give you the same problem. The misfire could be a bad ignition wire or a wire that got wet.
